A scaly captain and his seemingly dissatisfied robot are the only crew members on a rusty and mechanical spaceship. When the maggot-shaped cargo begins to show red stains, the captain activates a huge pesticide robot. In smooth stop motion (and without words), the figures move across the detailed and dramatically lit interior, which contrasts with magnificent footage of outer space.
